Oh Walter, what a lost soul he was huh? I mean I thought he was gonna abandon his family and his baby on the way for money. He says “money is life.” Child, what has life come to if money is the only answer. Luckily I think the story of my family proves otherwise. After many mistakes, especially my Bennie loosing her school money, and Ruth thinkin’ bout gettin rid of that precious baby, Brother became a man and helped all us Youngers, not just himself. I think he finally learned money comes and goes but you can’t just rid yourself of love and family. And God of course. He has taught us that love and kindness is life, and He is always right. I was wondering if anyone thinks Walter should have not moved us in, and that the risk wasn’t worth takin’?
Well child, I think it was. I have a garden and Travis has his own room, until the baby comes that is. Them white folks be lookin at us like were criminals for wantin’ a nicer house. We smile at them anyways, hopin’ someday all this will change, if not for us then for Travis and the new baby.
What do you all think of Brother’s decision?
